Beat the heat with a great 5 mile RT tour of Whitney Canyon.
There is almost no gain on this trail, but you will see interesting sites such as the sulphur springs, an intermittent stream which will probably by dry in August, and a (dry) waterfall. You will be done before lunch, but bring lots of water, snacks, and wear good shoes with tread! Bring your camera. We have often seen deer in this canyon! Meet at the trail head at 8:00 for an 8:15 departure.
Directions to Trailhead. Take the SR-14 freeway North from Valencia. Exit at the first offramp, Newhall Avenue, veer to the right. Turn right at the bottom of the offramp. You will enter the park and ride facility. Park. If there are no spaces to park, you can park for $5. In the MRCA parking lot to the left of the park and ride. The trail head is to the left of the park and ride. Look for everyone assembling at the SECOND green gate to the left.
